a) change your POSIX formats everywhere to SimpleDateFormat
b) provide a default formatter that converts POSIX style formats to
the relevant format.
That's all the NSTimestampFormatter really does, so you may as well
keep using that for now if you need POSIX strftime() support.
The deprecation note states it is because it will no longer be
improved, not that it is being removed any time soon.

With NSTimestampFormatter being deprecated in WO 5.4, and the

Much to my surprise, NSTimestampFormatter has this little gem of
information in the documentation:
Alternatively, you can specify the pattern using Sun's date
pattern specifiers. See Sun's documentation for the
java.text.SimpleDateFormat class for more information.
Ie. You can use the ISO datetime format that SimpleDateFormat uses
in your dateformat binding.
So the following WOString bindings both do the same thing:
